I've played twice recently (a Sat & Sun) at Pine Forest, and the Greens are PAINFULLY SLOW, due to being left shaggy. Also the fairways are not cut often enough to be true fairways... overall cheapness & maintenance neglect at this course. It's too bad, due to a challenging layout with interesting views & elevation changes. Please do better new management!

I had to drive about 50 miles to play here. Between hurricanes ,drought and fires the area has had its problems. However conditions were better than expected. Lots of t boxes allow each player to pick a comfortable distance. Picturesque layout. I only had to issues. Many t boxes were very unlevel but most of all.the greens were ridiculously SLOW ! they held a shot but were close to being unputtable.

I enjoyed my time playing the course , in fact everything was fantastic from the fabulous course layout , friendly staff with good breakfast tacos , to the people we met on the course. My only problem was the pace of a foursome who somehow did not understand the simplest rule of golf, if others are playing faster you can let them play through . other than that like Arnold would say" I'll be back".

Still one of our favorites after more than 30 years. While the greens and fairways can always use more water (it IS Texas, after all) the vistas, wonderful hole layouts and great use of topography make this the best deal around. But bring your own beer cooler, they have no alcohol license. But the snacks and food values are crazy good - tasty and cheap!

Even though there were many poor reviews on this course, we decided to give it a try and hope for the best. I've played all over Texas and this has been one of my favorite courses thus far. Though some greens are in poor shape, the majority of the course was very nice and green. Elevation changes on almost every hole make it a very fun challenge, and the views are outstanding. Moral of the story, No one writes a bad review unless they've had a bad game, so don't rely on them so heavily. Awesome course and will be back very soon. P.S. bring your own beer.

First time to play Pine Forest in 2018....I have played this course for many years and never seen the greens this bad. They were absolutely horrible....Many had more bare spots than grass..#1 green even had a 4' x 4' gouge...please, at least level it out...Drove from Houston to play with a friend....very disappointed....If you have a greenskeeper, I would fire hem...If not, please get one...

I play this course often, and the last few months the greens have been terrible. The rest of the course is in decent shape. I will continue to play here because it is close, and I can book online fairly cheap, but will be branching out more often due to the green conditions.

Apparently it's way too early in the season for this course to play well - in our opinion, this course shouldn't be open in it's current condition. Some fairways were covered with a heavy mix of clover and course grass; couldn't distinguish difference between fairway and rough! Lots of "potholes" and rough spots. And when I called to ask about course condition a few days before our scheduled game, the clubhouse forgot to mention all of the greens would be freshly sanded! This course has some potential, but it needs a lot of work to make it playable, much less enjoyable. Wasn't worth the 3 hour flight or the 1 hour drive. Very disappointing!!
